Course Professor

Nathan Amador Rowley, Ph.D.


Dr. Rowley is trained in Physical Geography with specialization in climatology/climate change, and remote sensing and GIS. His research interests include both cold and warm regions. His work on the Greenland Ice Sheet looks at dynamic interactions between the ice sheet surface and the atmosphere - paying particular attention to melt lake patterns and distributions. His interest in the tropics is through his connections at OWU where he investigates the environmental impacts of ecotourism and development in small communities in Costa Rica. For this he uses unmanned aerial vehicles (aka drones) to map communities and work with its members on developing environmental research questions.
